about the phone hacking at "news of the world"? >> first of all, sean hoare who cracked under the pressure, he did drink too much and died last week, he started it, and it was presented -- i just bought a bar in the south of england about nine months ago which is where hugh grant taped me. i was semi retiring from journal into. and the guardian presented it as a fantastic story. it was the british watergate and i was offered the chance to be part of it oovps. the whole point was, if we can label our former bosses, rebekah brooks, andy coulson who are arrested, not criminal masterminds but engaged in a media empire where criminality was rif, if that media empire got david cameron elected as the british prime minister, that's a good story. >> i have a break coming up. since you mentioned rebekah brooks and andy coulson, both former editors of "news of the world," do you have any doubt that they knew phone hacking was going on at that paperer? >> i have no doubt whatsoever. piers morgan was also my editor, but in that time in 1994-'5, it wasn't illegal. you could sit outside some

new day drops a new bombshell. on monday, it was the death of sean hoare, the first journalist to go on the record pointing the finger directly at former "news of the world" editor andy colson accusing him of actively encouraging phone hacking. police say his death is unexplained, but not suspicious. and in an ironic twist, the company accused of hacking got hacked themselves. murdoch's son paper had to quickly remove this fake headline on its paper last night. today's story makes no mention of parliament or their boss, rupert murdoch. the questioning is expected to take about three hours, but don't expect any detailed answers to direct questions about phone hacking. all three have said they will not answer questions that could in some way jeopardize the ongoing criminal investigation. matt? >> all right. stephanie gosk in london this morning. stephanie, thanks so much. michael wolff is the author of "the man who owns the news: inside the secret world of rupert murdoch." he is also the editorial director of "ad week" magazine. good to see you. talk about the dynamic. one of the bigge
